AC Transfer Switch
02 April 2012 | Vineland
The Generator 240/120 volts and two shore power connections pass through a Blue Sea transfer switch 4-pole, 3-position, Generator, Off, Shore Power, before going to the AC panel. The AC panel is divided into two sections either for each 120 volts legs from the generator or each shore power connection depending on the position of the transfer switch. There is a paralleling interlocking switch if you have only one shore connection.
I will divide the AC load between the two 120 volts section, one air conditioning unit on each section (12000 btu in main salon, 7000 btu in aft cabin), port and stbd side wall plugs, and so on.
There is also a interlocking shore power or ship power switch, this was originally for the a ships 120 volts generator. I will use it to connect the Ship's 2 KW invertor.
I will post more info and photos later.
